Nope. The Michelin PPs set me back by another 55K. The 17" did me in!

Umm..actually...33.5 and 55 add up to 88K . I didn't sell my OEM rims and tyres as I wanted to be very sure about the ride quality and handling, and wanted to have the option of switching in case I was really disappointed / dissatisfied. I believe the going rate for a buyback would be around 35K for all 5 rims and tyres if I do choose to sell.
